Ken Buck for Colorado
“In an age when so many of our political friends get to Washington and stab us in the back, Ken Buck is one who will have our backs.” When establishment Republicans wish to pretend they were wiser than tea party types in 2010, they’ll mention Sharon Angle, Christine O’Donnell, and Ken Buck as examples of “trust them.” They ignore Marco Rubio, who they opposed. They | Read More »
Head Pats, Seal Claps, and Scalp Collection
A new CNN poll is out. Strikingly, it shows that only 39% of Americans support all or most of Obamacare, which is drastically below the 51% mark the same polling found at the beginning of the year. More and more Americans see themselves, their family members, and friends losing jobs, losing benefits, and losing security. But Republicans refuse to fight to defund the legislation. We | Read More »
Vladimir Putin Trolls America
Vladimir Putin has decided to troll America with an op-ed in the New York Times. He gets the better of Barack Obama with much of his op-ed, including pointing out that if our rule is we won’t touch countries with nukes it is just going to incentivize countries getting nukes. But he ends with this: My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked | Read More »

Hope Of A Tree
“For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.” Job 14:7-9 Today marks twelve years since the attacks that truly changed our country. As we have in years past, Americans will slow down to remember September 11, 2001; and to that we have added September 11, 2012, | Read More »
Where I Was On September 11
Until September 11, 2001, I worked in the World Trade Center, halfway up Tower One. I wasn’t doing political blogging at the time, but was writing “the Baseball Crank” as a weekly baseball column for the online edition of the Providence (R.I.) Journal. Here’s my account of that day, written for ProJo two days later while it was all still fresh. We run this every | Read More »
The Candidate Disappoints
It was a historic election. The public rallied and came out to replace the man the public felt had betrayed them. Here came a candidate promising real hope. The candidate promised real change. The candidate promised that he would not make the mistakes of the past. He’d be no George W. Bush. He’d be honest. He’d fight for what was right. He’d put the middle | Read More »
Never has a President given a speech in which he wished to convince Americans to take an action he no longer is going to take. He has become to war what the Clapper is to turning on the lights. War is on and now war is off. But we will never call it war. The President told Americans they need to do this for the | Read More »
Ted Cruz Opposes Eric Cantor and Pete Sessions’ “Hug It Out” Plan to Fund Obamacare
Multiple people confirm to me that just a few hours ago Pete Sessions blew up about Ted Cruz and made sure everyone in the room knew he held Cruz in absolute contempt. It might be because Ted Cruz just called BS on Eric Cantor and Pete Sessions trying to screw conservatives. Cantor and Sessions are pursuing a plan to make it very easy for the | Read More »
The Latest on the Dog and Pony CR Plan
Today, Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced his new dog and pony CR plan to the House Republican Conference. They will ensure that the Senate sends a clean CR without defunding Obamacare to the president’s desk. The catch is that the House will vote to defund Obamacare in the CR, thereby saving members from an embarrassing vote, while splitting off the defund rider when the bill | Read More »
Obama Administration Claims Victory. The World Laughs.

While the Obama administration is sending out its minions and flunkies to proclaim success, Russia scored a staggering diplomatic victory yesterday and left the Obama administration’s policy towards Syria — to the extent one exists — in tatters.
Kerry, Obama, Spar Over “Credit”
While the world waits for the next development in the Syria debacle, Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama passive-aggressively battle over credit for the idea to allow Russia as mediator. Kerry was sure to remind everyone that his “rhetorical” challenge for Assad to turn over chemical weapons was accidental genius and as of such, he deserves credit. The US state department stressed that | Read More »
